Critic reviews for Lemon Scented You
THIS episode was the show I signed up for in American Gods, starting with that credit sequence that yes, apparently you've all seen, but it wasn't on the Starz screeners, so indulge me for a moment while I gush about it.
It all becomes easier to swallow if Fuller and company regard the originals as the mental junk food Wednesday implies they are.
A chilling look at the new gods, it's an action-packed whirlwind that puts each character to the test.
We're half way through the season now, but "Lemon Scented You" didn't feel as if it delivered to the level we've come to expect from American Gods.
American Gods continues to play around with some big ideas and visual moment, but episodes like this help make those ideas into a workable plot and a more tangible story line.
